Rainbow’s Red Book of Poetry : Lily Lawson
‘Do yourself a favour: buy this, curl up in your favourite chair and read it, knowing you will come away refreshed.’
Life is a complex thing. As social beings, we live side by side, sometimes in not so harmonious circumstances. This book celebrates love and tackling the challenges we face as humans. Control is not always ours.
Do your best.
Life is complicated, yet very simple.
‘These poems are layered and more formal — with an air of William Blake or even Christina Rosetti — but without pretension or anachronism. They still have the Lawson touch.’
‘Lily Lawson has this way of making me weep.
And understand myself a little better.
And understand others, perhaps, a little better too.’
